Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I am assuming that your microwave turns on and everything and that when you press the start button the table turns and all. This tells me at least that all the switches on the door are working properly and since your fuse is not blown you have power to your control panel. That being the case the magnetron (the part that does the cooking) is bad and needs to be replaced. If you are a do it yourselfer and can find the magnetron through a local supply house or the internet, replacing it is pretty straightforward. Unplug the microwave and take the cover off just a handful of screws. On the control panel side and behind and on top you will see the magnetron with cooling fins on it. The magnetron is usually held in place with three to four screws and has about 3 to four wires coming from it and going to a couple of places. These have terminals on them that unplug and there is no soldering or desoldering to do. Unplug the wires and be sure to make a small diagram as to which one goes where. Get a new magnetron and replace it. Put the cover on and you are back in business. God bless.
